2012 quarts de chaume, baumard, half bottle
We have a soft spot for the incredible Chenin Blancs from Baumard and gems such as this truly spectacular wine highlight the quality of winemaking at this Domaine. Baumard eschew traditional trellising methods for this part of the Loire and have also flown in the face of tradition by switching excluisively to screwcaps for their range. The Quarts de Chaume vineyard enjoys a superb terroir and a unique situation producing wines of rare elegance. This remarkable wine is wonderfuly textured and manages to comine power and clarity alongside richness and precision. Complex with floral bouquets and notes of citrus and orchard fruit with impeccable acidity, this is a wine to savour.

2015 coupes cuvee pinot noir, seven of hearts, half bottle
The first vintage of this unusual dessert wine came out in 2008 and the wine has gone from strength to strength ever since. This is fortified with brandy made from Pinot Noir grapes and whilst the production method draws similarities with Port, the style is certainly different, with the intention of retaining the Pinot Noir character first and foremost, and then making a dessert wine second. Lush Pinot fruit, beautifully integrated alcohol and well-balanced freshness on the finish. There's enough fruit and weight for the Coupes Couer to pair with heavier chocolate desserts but also enough freshness to go with pastries and cheesecakes as well.

Les Charmes de Kirwan is the second wine of 3rd Growth Château Margaux and, like it's more grown up sybling, has benefitted from the massive investment program in both the winery and the vineyard in recent years. It is generally made with the younger vines on the property but receives exactly the same care and attention as the wine.

Thankfully, the terrific Carte d'Or is extremely well-priced and offers a wonderful introduction into both the wines of the region and the Baumard style in general.

2018 chateau saransot dupre, cru bourgeois superieur listrac
Chateau Saransot-Dupre is a favourably sited 17 hectares property that lies between Fourcas Dupré and Fourcas Hosten in Listrac. Due to Listrac’s cooler temperatures, Merlot and Cabernet Franc are favoured over Cabernet Sauvignon to form the majority of the blend, helping them achieve optimum ripeness. Much like Chateau Fourcas Hosten, the wines have improved year on year since 2010 and the property were put on the radar thanks to a certain Robert Parker hailing the 2010 vintage as 'classed growth quality'. High praise indeed!

2018 elyssium black muscat, quady winery
Andrew Quady's change of career from making fireworks to making wine produced an explosion of its own kind when he created Essensia from the Orange Muscat grape. It was an instant success and until 1985 he could not make enough to satisfy demand. Now Quady is the foremost American winery specialising entirely in dessert wines and continues to win medals worldwide.The grapes were crushed, chilled and allowed to macerate, in order to extract the desired aromas and flavours. Fermentation was arrested with a neutral grape brandy. This arrested fermentation preserved the delicate aromas of the fresh, ripe grapes. The wine was then aged for three months in small French oak barrels. Elysium is a brilliant crimson purple colour with aromas of ripe berries, rose petals,strawberries and lychees. The vibrant acidity balances beautifully with the sweetness of this wine, making it very refreshing.

2019 mont sur rolle grand cru, dom. de maison blanche, half bt
This is a delicious, more'ish white made mainly from Chasselas, the grape variety which is typical to the Canton of Vaud.

Quite classic in style for Chasselas with a lovely balance of the creamy, fruity, floral and mineral palate. Rich and complex, this is a perfect wine to sip on its own, enjoy with fish and seafood.
